We just got back from our trip to Athens. Overall, I would recommend it to everyone. However, I would ask you to think twice before booking this hotel. This hotel has a very good location but that is all. It is located just off Syntagma square, within a walking distance of all major sites as well as Plaka where you can find excellent restaurants with the rooftop view of the Acropolis and souvenirs shops? Just around the corner from the hotel you can find small streets full with bars, cafes and restaurants. Main shopping street runs parallel with the hotel and on the other hand side street you can find Attica - largest department store.
Aside to that, this hotel has very little or nothing at all with the pictures shown on either TripAdvisor or any other similar site. What I mind the most is that we have booked a room for four adults (as shown on the picture) but got a room for two adults and two small children. I mean, you can not charge a spare bed as a proper bed. I didn't see any of the staff for our entire stay so I can not comment on that. The lady at the reception that done our check in was very nice. Other than that I don't know. One other thing - wifi - you can get it only in the lobby. It is very funny to enter a hotel lobby and see all these people staring at their laptop or smart phone screens. We came there to relax, to enjoy a delicious Greek food and to have fun. This is exactly what we've done!
If you are not there to do what we've came to do than I would recommend a different hotel. Please note that there are at least 10 different hotels within the same location.
